Foot Shell Almost Complete

Finally one complete!!! I just need to glue the pieces in the Battery Boxes. I just have them stuck in there,I got the other foot painted white today, They are not perfect but it's good enough for me. I am very Happy the way they turned out, I let my hoses set outside in the sun and rain for about 2 1/2 months and they look pretty weathered now.R3 will have Shells for Ancient City Con in 2 weeks!!!!! SWEET!!!!

I started working on my Detail Pieces did my glazing Putty to get rid of all the Pits, I also Painted my Ankle Cylinders this weekend after a week has passed I will tape up the green and do the silver, and then I can put them on. Also Crissy and I goofing around with our Droids.

Outer Feet Shells

Finally Working on R3 again, We ordered some A&A Outer shells but there are some pieces that are too short ;o(... And I want them done before Ancient City Con so Calvin decided to make me some while Andy is going to find out what's wrong... He actually built the shells to the motor Holder LOL!!! This is only rough cut and I still need to make the other side where the Battery boxes go and then the glazing putty and final sanding, Speaking of which I am doing the final glazing Putty on them then I am going to Paint them, hopefully this weekend.

New Tires For R3

Well, Had to buy R3 some new tires one of her other tires the Valve stem broke, so I decided to use some solid Tires Calvin found on the interne. They work awesome and was easier to take apart and put back on than I thought these tires roll smoother and more solid than the tube tires.
